Yes, You're Fat! I Like You Anyway.

No, I'm not pushing my book or audio program, but I am going to share an experience that just happened this morning; a similar experience to the one that was behind the name of that product line.

I ran into an old colleague this morning. Okay, let me start over. I ran after an old colleague this morning. She saw me and headed the other way; and you know why. Yep, she got fat.

I could care less what she looks like. She's a good person. She's a lot of fun. That's why I ran after her. I'm also not surprised she got fat. You see, I always knew the way she lost weight was never going to lead to long term weight loss. She made changes that deep down inside even she probably knew were not long term oriented. So now she's overweight and hiding from people. I don't know which is worse, being fat or getting fat again?

But let me ask you this.........................Are the changes you have been making ones that can stay in the permanent file?

Although I occasionally fall off the wagon, I'm proud to say that for the most part my changes are permanent. I head for the produce aisle, not the junk food aisle, when I walk in the grocery story. I bypass the plate of cookies and brownies at work lunches for the fruit plate (or bring my own). It hasn't been easy, but it's been worth it. It's taken years to change my old ways, but it took even more years to acquire the bad habits to begin with. I think the hardest part was accepting these two things: 1) Patience is a virtue and 2) Perfection is not realistic. I have 68 more days this year to keep adding to my permanent file.
